Create an extravagant floral headpiece
What lies beyond the garden path?
Local artists and florists are invited to create avant-garde floral headpieces for an afternoon of garden, fashion, art and music in Te Puke next Saturday.
“We are holding an afternoon function titled ‘Beyond the Garden Path’ as a fundraising project to support the local St John Ambulance Service,” says Te Puke Kiwicoast Lions projects director Michelle Cliff. “We are expecting more than 200 guests with fashion by Annah S, music, vibrant garden displays, and a parade of magnificent floral headpieces.”
The Te Puke Memorial Hall will be decorated with vibrant flowers, fashion and art. Models will be supplied wearing elegant black attire, and will only require artists and florists to make avant-garde floral inspired creations that can be worn on their heads.
“The artists can choose from one of our models - whimsical young maiden, elegant mature woman, vibrant yummy mummy, and country gent,” says Michelle. “Or bring your own fancy friend. This is not a competition, it is an opportunity for any creative person to submit an over-the-top headpiece.”
The criteria for the head pieces are that they are floral - real or created; and that they can be worn by a model on the catwalk.
“We would love to see creations that are avant-garde, entertaining, and extravagant, inspired by our theme ‘Beyond the Garden Path’, a celebration of all things floral and colourful,” says Michelle.
‘Beyond the Garden Path’ will be held in the Te Puke Memorial Hall at 1.30pm on Saturday October 19. For those who want to create a headpiece, register by contacting Michelle on: 027 716 8785 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Tickets to ‘Beyond the Garden Path’ are $30 and available at Giftrapt, Te Puke Florist or phone Kiwicoast Lions: 07 573 7702.
